By Robert Romano Despite the brazen power grab by Senate Democrats led by Majority Leader Harry Reid to blatantly ignore Senate rules to overcome cloture on most presidential nominees, there has been little Republican backlash to a move that has sharply changed the power structure in Washington, D.C. This is a rule that has stood the test of time for […]
By Rick Manning President Obama owes Ted Cruz and Mike Lee along with House Republicans an apology. He owes the tea party an apology. In fact, he owes all of America an apology. For weeks, Obama and his minions refused offer after offer that would have delayed implementation of Obamacare for a year. They not only refused to even talk […]
By Robert Romano House Republican leaders never had any intention of defunding or even delaying implementation of Obamacare. No other conclusion can be drawn from the complete capitulation by House Speaker John Boehner in agreeing to end the partial government shutdown, suspend the debt ceiling until Feb. 7, and allow funding for Obamacare to take effect without condition.

By now, it’s old news: The Obamacare exchange websites are still failing. Reporting on this, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer finally conceded that “they had three years to get this ready — if they weren’t fully ready, they should accept the advice that a lot of Republicans are giving them, delay it another year…” supporting the second CR passed by House Republicans […]

By Rebekah Rast — The gap of opposing viewpoints between Republicans and Democrats in Congress is closing. The fears of a Tea Party takeover in Congress from the 2010 elections are far gone, and in fact, should now be laughed at. Republicans had their opportunity, as the leading party in the U.S. House of Representatives, to take a stand — […]
By David Bozeman – With no record to run on in 2012, look for Democrats (along with their accomplices in the mainstream media) to attack like cornered animals.
